  • Album: Nights of the Pain

No matter how f*cked up a relationship may have been at the time, it's tough not to look at the past through a rosy lens. Just ask Booth newcomer Shavaar, who grapples with what he ominously calls “The Nostalgia” on his latest single. Over beatsmith Penacho''s slow-burning synths and understated rhythm section, the unsigned singer/songwriter plaintively addresses an ex-girl, crooning, “I just want the feeling back.” For this poignant cut and much more, cop Nights of the Pain when it drop on Wednesday, December 24 (aka Christmas Eve).
